Don't Know when to Quit

Well it's not the end of Summer any more but these Knockout roses just won't give it up. We've had a couple frosts that damaged the rest of the garden but tomorrow night there's a hard freeze on the way. That should finally knock out these Knockouts. --Fuji XT-4 w/16-55mm

Be nice to be shooting flowers outdoors, good photos! If you want them to have a chance to linger, drape them with an old sheet that reaches the ground overnight. Often works.

Thanks. If we have an early frost like early October my wife will sometimes do that to try and save some favorites. This time of year we're ready to say goodbye. Roses and some mums are all that's still hanging on. There does seem to be some lesson to learn though from their never say die behavior.

Nice photo. Are you suppose to cover them for the winter?

Beautiful shots. Appreciate your vision this time of the year.
We had Knock-outs before we moved and we’re amazed at how long into late fall they would bloom. Being on the south side of the house helped.
